Wheel of Light

Introduction



Wheel of Light could be described as a cross between Roulette and Big Six. The game features a wheel numbered 0 to 30. After bets are made, a light spins around the wheel and where it stops determines the winning number.

Rules



  1. The game is played on a 31-position wheel, numbered 0 to 30.
  2. A spinning light will stop somewhere on the wheel to determine a winning number.
  3. The following table shows what each bet pays on a "for one" basis.

    6 to 13 3.75
    14 to 16 10
